DESTINATIONS martinique fortdefrance Do & See Sainte-Anne


Sainte-Anne, Martinique's southernmost village, is one of the island's prettiest towns. It is often frequented by visitors for its shops and restaurants, as well as its great crafts market, but the biggest draw to the area are the wonderful beaches, like the idyllic Les Salines, just a short distance away.

Do & See

The picturesque seaside city of Fort-de-France offers plenty in the way of sights and attractions, including beautiful historical buildings, an imposing fort and ample walkability, but it is best used as a home-base for exploring the natural surroundings of the island of Martinique. Laze at idyllic beaches from coast to coast, hike up the commanding Mount Pelée, and marvel at the lush, tropical beauty of the island. The more historically-minded can check out the Musée de la Pagerie or contemplate the solemn Anse Cafard Slave Memorial, a sobering reminder or the country's and region's tumultuous past.
